FISSENTZIDES ARCHITECTS

STUDIO

   We are an architectural studio based in Nicosia – Cyprus, specializing in a wide range and mixed palette of architectural projects of distinct nature.

 

  The architectural studio offers tailor-made concepts and solutions for projects of residential, commercial, industrial, sports and mix-use nature, guaranteeing a unique approach and identity for each project.

 

 Our sensitive approach to urban planning, detailed customization in interior design, landscaping and lighting are the main attributes that differentiate each project and guarantee a wider approach to it than just that of architecture itself.

 

   Collaborating with national and international well renowned companies excelling in the field of civil, electrical, mechanical and topographical consulting and/or engineering services, we undertake each and every project from the initial research phase of the preliminary concept design, to construction supervision and key turnover delivery, while also guaranteeing top quality maintenance interventions.

 

  Getting to know our clients and exchanging important information with them throughout all phases of our work is an essential and sought after part of the social aspect of architecture which we consider to be a very important part of our job.

 

    The creation of our own “FABoutique” Concept Store in 2018 has allowed us to collaborate and represent various world renowned design, furniture, lighting and décor brands with which we team up, taking the detail and custom design of our projects to a higher level.
